3 Ransomware Group Newcomers to Watch in 2024

3 Ransomware Group Newcomers to Watch in 2024

Jan 15, 2024 Ransomware / Cybercrime
The ransomware industry surged in 2023 as it saw an alarming 55.5% increase in victims worldwide, reaching a staggering 4,368 cases.  Figure 1: Year over year victims per quarter The rollercoaster ride from explosive growth in 2021 to a momentary dip in 2022 was just a teaser—2023 roared back with the same fervor as 2021, propelling existing groups and ushering in a wave of formidable newcomers. Figure 2: 2020-2023 ransomware victim count LockBit 3.0 maintained its number one spot with 1047 victims achieved through the  Boeing  attack, the Royal Mail Attack, and more.  Alphv  and  Cl0p  achieved far less success, with 445 and 384 victims attributed to them, respectively, in 2023.  Figure 3: Top 3 active ransomware groups in 2023 These 3 groups were heavy contributors to the boom in ransomware attacks in 2023, but they were not the sole groups responsible. Many attacks came from emerging ransomware gangs such as  8Base , Rhysida, 3AM, Malaslocker,  BianLian , Play,  Akira , and o
The Interdependence between Automated Threat Intelligence Collection and Humans

The Interdependence between Automated Threat Intelligence Collection and Humans

Sep 15, 2023 Automated Threat Intelligence
The volume of cybersecurity vulnerabilities is rising, with close to  30% more vulnerabilities found in 2022 vs. 2018 . Costs are also rising, with a data breach in 2023 costing  $4.45M on average vs. $3.62M in 2017 . In Q2 2023,  a total of 1386 victims were claimed  by ransomware attacks compared with just 831 in Q1 2023. The  MOVEit attack has claimed over 600 victims  so far and that number is still rising. To people working in cybersecurity today, the value of automated threat intelligence is probably pretty obvious. The rising numbers specified above, combined with the  lack of cybersecurity professionals availabl e, mean automation is a clear solution. When threat intelligence operations can be automated, threats can be identified and responded to, and with less effort on the part of engineers. However, a mistake that organizations sometimes make is assuming that once they've automated threat intelligence workflows, humans are out of the picture. They conflate automation

May 20, 2024Software Security / Vulnerability
All developers want to create secure and dependable software. They should feel proud to release their code with the full confidence they did not introduce any weaknesses or anti-patterns into their applications. Unfortunately, developers are not writing their own code for the most part these days. 96% of all software contains some open-source components, and open-source components make up between  70% and 90% of any given piece of modern software . Unfortunately for our security-minded developers, most modern vulnerabilities come from those software components.  As new vulnerabilities emerge and are publicly reported as  Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures  (CVEs), security teams have little choice but to ask the developer to refactor the code to include different versions of the dependencies. Nobody is happy in this situation, as it blocks new features and can be maddening to roll back component versions and hope that nothing breaks. Developers need a way to  quickly  determine if
